What are the Benefits of a Machinery FMEA?
Improves the safety, reliability, and robustness of equipment and tooling
Allows design changes to be incorporated early to minimize machinery cost and delivery delays
Minimizes the risk of delaying product programs
Reduces overall life cycle costs
When is a Machinery FMEA Started?
A Machinery FMEA must be started early in the design phase when:
- The equipment and tooling being specified is able to take advantage of revisions in order to derive the desired benefits.
- When GDT information on component parts are available and Critical/Special Characteristics are identified.
Normally, Design FMEAs on the products that are being manufactured and Process FMEAs on the steps used during the manufacture will be available.
